Students currently enrolled at COC may schedule a Counseling appointment up to two weeks in advance.  Note that you must have a COC student ID number to schedule a Counseling appointment. 

Due to high volume, appointment availability is reduced during registration periods. If you are unable to schedule an appointment, please visit us during our drop-in times. Times are listed in the VRC Hub on Canvas or please call our office for the drop-in times. 

Our COC VA counselors offer every service our General Counseling office provides; however, we specialize in VA policy. You do not have to be using your benefits to see us.

Do you Need a Counseling Appointment? 

Many times, the things you need to complete do not require a counseling appointment and an email or drop-in counseling will suffice. Below you will see what we can do over drop-in or email and what will require a counseling appointment. If you choose email, please email Jesse Vera or Carmen Viveros.
